MUNICIPAL ADVISORY BOARD
It is with heartfelt sadness that we tell you of the passing of Eric Shaffer, a stalwart of our industry, and whom many of you know. For more than a decade, Eric, Chief Engineer of Utilities for the City of Duluth, was an integral part of MAB and PPI, tirelessly devoting his time and expertise to improve the water systems of, not only Duluth, but our entire country. He passed away on Feb 23 due to injuries from a snowmobile accident, a sport and activity he thoroughly enjoyed. We know you will join us in expressing our most sincere condolences to his wife, Linnae, his son Christopher, his whole family, his friends nationwide and his coworkers at the great city of Duluth.
